1. If the artichoke hearts are large, cut them in quarters. If they are small, cut them in half. You should have about 40 pieces.
2. Combine the marinade ingredients in a blender, and process for 30 seconds, or until smooth. Place the artichoke hearts in a shallow dish, and pour the marinade over them. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
3. Cut each ham slice into eight 1/2-inch strips. Drain the artichoke hearts, and discard the marinade. Wrap a ham strip around each artichoke piece, and secure with a wooden toothpick.
